TeleNav has announced an HTML 5 browser-based navigation service for mobile devices. They've been a popular and widely used 3rd party navigation tool on Android for a long time and now their entire suite of location-based services are about to get even better, and easier to access.
Google have pushed out Google Maps Navigation beta access to users across Europe and in Canada, extending the software's current availability which, so far, has been limited to the US and the UK. The service updates the standard Google Maps app with turn-by-turn speech directions and voice control. France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria and the Netherlands all get Google Maps Navigation from today. The update is available via the Android Market; let us know how you get on! [via the::unwired]
